Snapchat has unveiled a host of new camera tools, including a Looping Video feature, as it gears up to take on Instagram.
There's also a new Loop tool for videos so you can decide if your Snap plays once or loops until your friend is ready to tap to the next Snap.
Once you've captured a video or photo, select the pencil icon on the upper right to start editing. Nevertheless, shares of SNAP have traded down 5% as of the close of the company's first day of trading while the S&P 500 is up 1% over that same period.
The move from Snap to step up its game follows on from relentless competition from the likes of Facebook and Instagram - both of which have aped its original features like Stories and disappearing messages. Jefferies' study of Snapchat's demographics and user engagement noted a surge in the number of people in their 30s and 40s who are active on the app. Snapchat, the disappearing photo app owned by Snap (SNAP), is generally considered a Millennial app.
Don't you just hate it when you want to fully enjoy a snap but the time limit is not enough and then it fades into oblivion.
